“Exceptionally entertaining…an offbeat sense of humor and a feisty sense of justice.” ―San Francisco Chronicle
“Millhone is an engaging detective-for-hire…P.I. Kinsey Millhone and her creator…are arguably the best of [the] distaff invaders of the hitherto sacrosanct turf of gumshoes.” ―The Buffalo News
“Once a fan reads one of Grafton's alphabetically titled detective novels, he or she will not rest until all the others are found.” ―Los Angeles Herald Examiner

Seems like a routine job. Boldt was last seen lavishly draped in a $12,000 lynx coat heading for Boca Raton. She never got there. But someone else had, and was camping out illegally in Mrs. Boldt's abode. Now, things were beginning to seem a bit less routine - particularly when Kinsey is ordered to drop the investigation just as she discovers that days before Elaine Boldt "bolted", her next-door neighbor and bridge partner had been murdered. Unfortunately, the killer is still at large . . . and looking for Kinsey!
Another good book by Sue Grafton. I really think she is one of the masters of the mystery drama. I like the fact that she sticks to the bare bones of the story and rarely goes off track and, so far, the bare bones always work for Grafton. The book is fast paced and easy to read because everything you read goes right to the plot of the story. The only weak part of this book were the parts with Elaine's sister and brother-in-law. Her sister was needed at the begining to bring the story to a start but, without giving anything away, the parts in the middle where Kinsey meets with the brother-in-law and then Beverly, Elaine's sister, seemed a little odd and meaningless to the plot. It would have been good if Grafton had gone somewhere with their stories, but they never come up again. I would like to read a book about just the two of them! No matter what, I am a fan of Sue Grafton. Even with the weakness I still give it 4 stars and I can promise that I will keep reading her books A-Z!
